ASF

I wonder if rendered / processed pig bones used as a dicalcium mineral source are in Fact the cause of the spread of ASF?

 

Evidently, the ASF heat is on in the USA now.

The govt is out physically inspecting hog farms.

 

sounds like they're trying to make sure farmers using fertilizer w old dog food content are using that AS fertilizer and not feeding hogs w it.

 

a lot of dog food is imported from China.

Re: ASF

Yeah, a old show pig trick is to mix cat food with the show hog`s feed ration ...and the cat food sometime comes from China, so there you go.

Re: ASF

They could go to a terminal show, which might be better anyway then exhibitors wouldn`t risk bringing disease back to their place.

Re: ASF

ASF is so darn contagious the people actually spread it too.

 

Thats why  I mentioned it's likely in the chinese mineral that's in and coming to the USA.

 

processed / rendered pig bones are a major source of dicalcium phosphate which is thee main used in mineral supplement / also trace mineral salt etc.

 

this using the same species fed back to the same species does not work.

bse in cattle was / is a good example .
